Oftentimes, the kitchen is one of the most cluttered rooms in the house. Countertop appliances take up a lot of space and Tupperware containers are always losing their lids. And don’t get us started on the random junk drawer. If you’re looking to simplify your kitchen, we have 10 products that are perfectly suited for taking some of the stress — and clutter — out of your life.
Amazon Basics Multi-Purpose Stainless Steel Scraper
A scraper is such a simple tool when you think about it — it’s just a handle and a piece of metal. But it’s one of those kitchen utensils that can be used in a myriad of ways, from cutting dough to picking up scrap to throw in the garbage.
Lodge 6-Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
A Dutch oven can handle an impressive number of tasks. Not only can this pot go from stovetop to oven, it can cook, bake, marinate, roast, stew, scramble, and more. One of these in your artillery will easily let you get rid of a few old pots and pans sitting around.
Esie Houzie Kitchen Gadgets
Kitchen drawers are often the first place in the house to get cluttered, and downsized versions of otherwise large kitchen tools can help simplify that problem. This option by Esie Houzie has five tools that are perfectly sized for a small kitchen. The set includes a peeler, grater, bottle opener, pizza cutter, and grinder. Hang it on a hook next to your prep area for a stress-free meal.
ALEZEL Magnetic Weekly Calendar
Figuring out what to eat for dinner is a struggle unto itself. Streamlining meal prep and menu planning can take a lot of the stress out of cooking. This dry-erase set is great to keep everyone in-the-know of dinner plans and keep you accountable at the grocery store to avoid over-buying.
VASAGLE Kitchen Island
An island is a great way to add storage and prep space to a kitchen that’s lacking in square footage. Not only does this free up storage, but it also adds more surface area to your kitchen, making it easier to maneuver around while cooking.
Hamilton Beach Fresh Grind Electric Coffee Grinder
If you want to start simplifying your kitchen, find appliances that can do multiple jobs, like a coffee grinder. Of course, it can grind your coffee beans, but it can also be used to grind spices, herbs, and nuts, making it as much a part of your dinner plans as your morning brew.
Ninja DT201 Foodi
If you want a real workhorse in the kitchen, look no further than the Ninja DT201. This 10-in-1 countertop appliance can eliminate the need for a separate toaster oven, toaster, and air fryer, while also giving you the convenience of a small conventional oven. It can roast, broil, and bake, giving you versatility for when you don’t want to break out the big pots and pans.
PUILUO Under Sliding Cabinet Basket Organizer
A sliding cabinet organizer helps control clutter and allows better organization. This versatile addition to your kitchen keeps your clutter in check, including under your sink and Tupperware containers.
Utopia Home Fridge Organizer Bins
Similar to your cupboards, the fridge can quickly become a No Man’s Land when it comes to finding food. Fridge bins help clutter and eliminate the guesswork of what is actually in the fridge. These bins are also great for meal prep, as you can store each day’s ingredients in an individual bin and simply pull that specific one out when it’s time to start cooking.
NETANY Glass Spice Jars
The spice cabinet can easily get out of control — less used spices often sit in the back, and there may be two or three bottles of your favorite spices because you couldn’t remember if you ran out. Keep track of your spices by streamlining them into matching jars that are easily labeled to eliminate confusion.
